Google Map of Banned Websites


Harvard's Berkman Center has created a website where web users can report where and how web sites are being blocked around the world. HerdictWeb allows users anywhere in the world to post a report of a web site that is inaccessible.

The home page of HerdictWeb features a live real-time map showing the latest reports of inaccessible websites. The map animates through the latest reports submitted to HerdictWeb. Each mapped report includes a link to click through to the HerdictWeb site report for the submitted website.

The site report details how many times the website has been reported inaccessible and in which countries. The site report page also includes a heat map to visualise which countries have reported the site inaccessible the most.
